Accommodation

Bookings for college accommodation for registered delegates are currently being taken through the Congress online store.

Accommodation for those attending the conference has been organized at Christ Church and St Edmund Hall. We will be offering a package of bed, breakfast and lunch. Please do not try to contact the colleges directly, since all the bookings should be made through the Conference organizers.

There is a common room, 10 internet terminals and photocopying facilities. Most of the accommodation is in study bed rooms, or standard sets comprising a study and a separate bedroom. All have telephones; and bathrooms are shared between four rooms. Additonally about 75 en-suite rooms will be available with private shower and toilet. Lunches will be in the Medieval Hall, and delegates have access to the Cathedral, guided college tours and free access to the Christ Church Picture Gallery

Most of the accommodation is in study bedrooms with hot and cold water, shaving lights and sockets and central heating. Showers and/or baths and toilets are provided on each floor. A limited number of en-suite rooms is also available at an additional charge. Breakfast and lunch are served in the main dining hall.

Christ Church and St Edmund Hall also have a very limited number of rooms suitable for double occupation.



Conference delegates may instead wish to make their own arrangements to stay in hotels or guest houses, and information is available on various websites, for example http://www.findspot.com/accommodation-in-oxford.htm.

However, guest accommodation in Oxford is expensive and always heavily booked during the summer season. We recommend accommodation in one of the colleges as the best option in most circumstances.
